Kindergarden

Ages 5 to 6

Kindergarten is a crucial year to develop your child’s foundation of learning. This is the stage where your child will learn the basics of math, reading, writing and science. The children also get used to the environment and the routine that is followed in school.

Language Skills

In this course, learners receive structured lessons on readiness skills through emphasis on phonics, language skills, literature, and handwriting to help develop comprehension, build vocabulary, and promote a lifelong interest in reading.Phonics prepares learners to become independent readers through systematic, multi-sensory instruction in phonemic awareness and decoding skills. Literature and Comprehension kindles the imagination while building comprehension and vocabulary. The emphasis is on classic literature—fairy tales, fables, and folktales—including many works that embody exemplary virtues. Language Skills help learners develop comprehension, vocabulary, and a love of language. Offline vocabulary instruction is accompanied by online review and practice. It lays the foundations of the writing process as students brainstorm, discuss, illustrate, write, and share ideas with others. Handwriting provides gentle instruction to help students print letters correctly

Mathemetics

This research-based course focuses on computational fluency, conceptual understanding, and problem-solving. The engaging course features new graphics, learning tools, and games; adaptive activities that help struggling students master concepts and skills before moving on. The course introduces learners to numbers. They learn through reading, writing, counting, comparing, ordering, adding, and subtracting. They experience problem solving and encounter early concepts in place value, time, length, weight, and capacity. They learn to gather and display simple data. Learners also study two- and three-dimensional figures—they identify, sort, study patterns, and relate mathematical figures to objects within their environment.
